'Duck Dynasty' coming to Calloway Co. High School May 11 | Events
MURRAY, KY (KFVS) - The Calloway County Football team recently announced the stars of the hit TV show on A&E, “Duck Dynasty,” will be in Murray for an event to benefit Calloway County Football on May 11.
“We are thrilled to have this event and these great men in our school," head football coach Brad Lawson said. "Duck Dynasty is one of the most popular shows on television now and to have them in our gym benefiting our football program, it’s just amazing. It’s just going to be a great night for Calloway County High School, our program, and our community."
Scheduled to appear are Phil Robertson, Willie Robertson and Si Robertson.
As a high school athlete, Phil Robertson was all-state in football, baseball, and track and attended Louisiana Tech on a football scholarship. There he played ahead of four-time Super Bowl winning and Hall of Fame quarterback from the Pittsburgh Steelers Terry Bradshaw.
After college, Phil spent several years teaching until he produced a duck call in 1972 and Duck Commander was born. During this time, Phil also turned his life over to the Lord and not only is he known as the Duck Commander, he has built up a reputation all over the country for his faith and belief in the Almighty. He is invited to speak at hundreds of different churches and organizations every year, telling them what the Lord had done for him and can do for them. Phil is married to Kay and they have four boys, Alan, Jase, Willie and Jep.
Willie Robertson is the CEO of Duck Commander and graduate of Harding University. He also created Buck Commander which can be seen on the Outdoor Channel. Willie loves being outdoors and is happiest at home in West Monroe, La. with his wife Korie and children, John Luke, Sadie, Will and Bella.
Si Robertson, the youngest brother of Phil Robertson, can be seen on the Duck Commander videos and also on the TV show Duck Dynasty. Si has worked for Duck Commander since 1993 when he retired from the United States Army. Si lives in West Monroe, La. with his wife Christine.
